Probably the best Bigfoot horror flick out there.

Enthusiasts of the simplicity of the original "Blair Witch" picture will admire that it falls well within the tradition of keeping things low-tech.

Willow Creek is a well-crafted, slow-burning horror that uses the found footage approach to deliver a movie that is just as much about what you don't see as what you do. A found footage movie as it should be done.

While the final "reveal" feels at once expected but out of nowhere, Willow Creek is a solid look inside the mind of someone obsessed with one of our weird national myths.

I love all of Goldthwait's films (except one) but I wasn't sure what his goal was with Willow Creek. I can rest assured now that like any good filmmaker, he wanted to take the audience for a hell of a ride and tell a great story. He has succeeded.

It's definitely worth watching and it's impressive what Goldthwait and his two leads were able to accomplish with what couldn't have been much more than a $100 budget and a weekend.

Willow Creek's mixture of quizzical documentary and gripping horror film is the effective result.

Willow Creek is the best found footage shocker in ages, a statement that speaks volumes about the floundering genre.

A wonderful turn of the found footage sub-genre that watches like a part found footage movie, and part documentary shoot that took a turn in to hell.

Goldthwait's made a film that's half kitschy American road trip, half straight chiller and his two leads ably switch tone, just as Goldthwait's film seems to be warning that we should beware the embrace of cultish legends as entertainment.

"Willow Creek" a canny horror film and a derivative one, but as a reminder of the power of suggestion, the unseen dwarfing even the grandest budgets, prodding our imagination and chills us to the bones.

One senses that Goldthwait penned the Willow Creek script not so much to indulge in genre elements (which he handles with a pro's touch) but more to explore the emotional intimacy between the leads.

Willow Creek isn't a joke. It's not a satire. It's an actual found footage horror movie that centers on Bigfoot... and it's actually scary.

Willow Creek is an unexpectedly restrained and atmospherically effective slow burn.

The two actors establish a realistic chemistry, and the otherwise familiar movie cranks up the tension by exploiting common fears.

It's damn good. Believe it... [Willow Creek is] a break-up movie, really; just one in which a mysterious monster assists in the breaking.

Willow Creek is Goldthwait flexing a whole new set of film-making muscles and he proves that there's some life left in the found footage genre.

It's smaller in scope and horror ambition, which automatically makes it more enjoyable than most of its brethren, creating a mix of local color and camping disaster that's basic but frightfully effective.
